If you are a fan obsessed or just a beauty lover curious about Diptyque, come on over! I thought this would be a fun place to share your thoughts, collections, decorating ideas, questions about the fabulous world of Diptyque. I started out with one candle, the Beverly Hills candle-which is so fabulous-I'll post a picture of it tomorrow-thinking I was crazy to buy a $70 candle. Yes, it's crazy-crazy good! I've since collected 2 or 3 more and purchased a perfume. This week I got my first body care item, the satin body oil. I really love everything from Diptyque. So let's discuss One question I have is how do you get the inside cleaned out so you can use the jars for pretty collections like I see a lot of on social media?
a place to post about all things Sephora Favorites sets: past, present and future. Have a question, please ask. Have a review, please post. Have pics, please show us. These sets are one of my favorite things about shopping at Sephora. I get to try a bunch of products for a lower price and always end up finding some HG items. Today, I got the Sephora Favorites: Beauty on the Fly. It was $42 plus ebates was at 8%. For me, I've either been wanting to try all of these items, or have tried and really like them. More pics and thoughts in the first post.

I thought since a few BTer's like mermaids, unicorns, cute stuff, iridescent/holographic items... I'd start a thread so we could post all the products (beauty or not) that could fit this category.... even more enabling! hahahaha Share products you find that you think others might like.... For example: Starbucks Rainbow Foil Cold Cup Tumbler, 24 fl oz Iridescent Waves Cold Cup, 16 fl oz
Hi! I haven't seen a current thread about CP and was wondering if there were any fans here! I know its not High End, but the quality is great and I love my growing collection and would love to see anyone elses
Since more and more fall product pics are showing up on social media, decided to start a thread early to keep track of them.

Im interested in hearing about your experience (similar to mine or otherwise). I placed an order Wednesday morning, received a confirmation email and the charges were pending on my credit card, but whenever I tried to look at my order history on their website, I got an internal server error. By Friday morning, I still hadn't gotten a shipping email so I tried to contact them. I emailed, I messaged on Facebook and I called ( no one ever answers, it just goes into a voicemail system) but didn't get a response to any of these. Now this morning I checked my credit card and the charges have actually posted, but still no shipping email. I contacted them one more time to say I've been charged but still can't get an information about my order. Honestly I'm not expecting a response and I'm thinking that by the end of next week, ill have to contact my credit card company to dispute the charges. So like I said, just looking for any experiences with this company. I've never had a company just ignore my questions before so I'm not sure what more I can do at this point.
Show off pics of your pets, tell stories, anything you want to share about those special animals in your life Post as much and as often as you want!

welcome back to the junk drawer of random beauty thoughts and musings. it has been nearly a year, so i think it is time for a rew RT thread ! when i'm doing my makeup in the morning, my dog sometimes throws a fit until i move his food bowl over to where i'm sitting. i'm certainly not the diva in our relationship. ____________________ THE QUESTIONS THREAD : http://community.sephora.com/t5/Products/The-Quest ion-Thread-Because-not-all-questions-need-their-ow ...

givenchy is one of the luxury beauty brands that has a firm place in my heart. my first luxury lipstick (rouge interdit in 'pretty rose') was givenchy, and i treasured it. i'm not exactly on top of 'new releases' as such (though of course i'll share here as i stumble upon news), but i wanted to create a space for my fellow Givenchy beauty lovers ! here are 2 dated adverts from 2011 but i lovvvve them and and find them apt for the brand:
We hear all the time about how antioxidants and drinking green tea is good for your body and your complexion. I'm curious, have anyone noticed a difference in your skin when drinking tea vs. drinking same amount of water? Also, any tea connoisseur here? What type of tea do you like? Are you the modern type with electric kettle or do you like classic with the teapot? Do you like tea straight up? or do you add milk/sugar or drink it with desserts? I definitely notice a difference in my skin when I consume a lot of dairy or sugary drinks vs. when I'm not, but I can't say I noticed a difference in complexion when drinking tea vs. water. It does help to soothe my stomache tho after greasy food or when I'm stressed. I usually go for Chinese green tea and floral tea. I used to buy a lot of Teavanna, but now I'm obsessed with David's Tea.
inspired by a recent YouTube tag I thought I'd start a thread here. My go to look was electric blue liner and mascara from collection 2000 with Avon iced champink eyeshadow dust and the same colour lipstick. I thought I was the bomb! Sadly no photos handy to share, if I can find one I'll upload but I hated having my pics taken These days youngsters have such better access along with tutorials that they can learn from off if YouTube. My 12 year old can do a fab contour and even perfect winged eyeliner! What was your go to look? please share a photo too if you have one! take care X
Hello there girlies! I made this discussion because I am curious to see what you guys received in your Sample Bags for those of you who shopped last week during the Beauty Insider Appreciation Week! It doesn't matter if you are a Beauty Insider, VIB, or VIB Rouge. Share what you products you received and post them down below! You can include pictures!
So this is the spin off from the Gift Bag info thread. If you bought a gift bag from one of the offers posted there and you have items that you won't use or items that you would like to stockpile, this is the place Please try to restrict your swap posts to items from gift bags recently mentioned on the Gift Bag Enthusiasts thread. If you have swap items not from the gift bags on the thread please use the swap thread in BI section. And as we follow on the other thread, please conduct all swaps in an open and honest fashion. Most of us are on the successful trades feedback list and if you are not, please consider offering to mail first. Hope we can all swap some goodies!
so i've seen Fall threads and I've seen and Holiday wishlists but we seemed to possibly have jumped past one of the best makeup oriented holidays of the year discussion wise. or maybe I'm just a little too excited this year and want to get the ball rolling. any ideas of what anyone is planning to be yet. brainstorming? anyways I thought i would start a thread. I searched the search bar and didn't find one for 2016 so I hope I am not being redudnat with this thread. : )
So, despite me being in Low buy February and no buy July I still made rouge 😳... My confession is that I hoard foils and deluxe samples of skincare but rarely use them so...who wants to join me in 'Sample September' ? I plan to only use sample skincare, masks, moisturizers, serums, treatments etc for the entire month. Hoping to find some new goodies for when the VIBr sale is on.
i have a secret love of watching vintage beauty ads, but i just came across these tutorials and i had to share. i can't get enough. i love how some advice is clearly very dated, and some is undeniably timeless ! 1930s 1940s 1950s (i'm having trouble finding a proper 50s one) 1960s
I thought it'd be fun to create a thread where we share our 'mask faces'! I'd love to see how lovely & silly you all look with masks on It'd be great if you mention the name of the mask you are using as well! I'll start things off! Tonight I am using the Lush Magnaminty mask
Lippie here. Lippie there. Lippies everywhere!! So I thought I'd share my growing lippie collection and addiction. I know some of you ladies want to know what I have and from where or what.

OK so there have been a lot of 'rediscovered products' threads over the years; but the ones i found were pretty old so i figured i'd start a fresh one. hope everyone is ok with that ! 1. NARS single eyeshadow -- ashes to ashes . this has long been a favorite of mine but pretty much neglected the past year or two as i was preferring more matte colors. but ashes to ashes is that perfect kind of shimmer -- no glitter, but a perfect brown-grey-plum shift that is alluring but subtle. i find this is a perfect 'all over wash' sort of shadow. 2. NARS all day luminous weightless foundation . i totally understand why this foundation has such a love/hate reaction. it doesn't always work for me. if my skin is dehydrated, in particular, it can be a disaster -- same with if i apply it too thickly. but when it works, it works so gloriously. it really does feel and look like second skin...unlike anything i've ever used. this sort of inconsistency doesn't bother me because i quite literally have on and off days with all of my foundations. plus, NARS siberia is my absolute perfect match. i'm glad i'm revisiting this one !
i don't want this to be a hates or bashing thread. more of a general "i tried this thing and it clearly wasn't meant for me" rather than a "this is crap !" sort of discussion, if that distinction makes sense..... i find these sorts of discussions helpful. you can learn 1. that you're not alone, or that 2. you were using a thing incorrectly and maybe it's worth another try or 3. that a thing you were considering spending your money on may not be worth the risk after all (though i'd take this last possibility with a grain of salt; everyone is different !!) i'll post my list below
august is over and it blows my mind. here are some things that have also blown my mind this month ! (full disclosure: i'm drinking a magnificent cup of coffee as i write this so these descriptions are long and windy and hyper-caffeinated. and i'm ok with it) NARS radiant tinted moisturizer . i forgot what a friggin lovely product this is. it got overshadowed by the (also lovely) velvet matte skin tint, and the other foundations i've been having affairs with the last few months, but this is almost a perfect product in my opinion (only point deduction from me is that i don't have a perfect color match; the rest of it's attributes make up for that !). surprisingly good coverage, super smoothing, super glowing but not greasy. SHISEIDO luminizing satin face color, pk107 Medusa . This was a unicorn product for me--as it's not sold in the U.S. and until a recently i thought was discontinued entirely. in fact, it it's a best seller in asia still, and is also sold in europe. some of you may remember the Light Pink Blush Discussions of spring 2015 when NARS released the 'reckless' blush which a lot of us found too glittery--this Medusa came up and we all fell into a long distance hypothetical love affair. annnyyyway. a BTer gave this to me (YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE THANK YOU SO MUCH STILL 1000000 TIMES LOVE YOU) and there hasn't been a day i've gone without it since. but what exactly is it ? it's a blush. or a highlighter. or a blush topper. the pink is indeed very very light, and it's subtle, but there is a very subtle bluey/purpley shift. it's matte, so i wouldn't describe it as a frost, but it's a Thing . a Thing that entrances people as they look at you so then in their hypnosis you can get them to do whatever you want. and this, my friends, is why it's called Medusa. GLOSSIER generation G lip colors (jam & crush) . these were rehomed to me from another super lovely BTer and i want you to know that they have found a very very happy home. these are everything i want a tinted balm to be--pigmented but matte. i wouldn't call them super long lasting, but they don't slip off (as i find things like CLINIQUE black honey do). they give a lovely just-bitten effect with no grease look. i also enjoy wearing them as a base, of sorts, under other lipsticks. absolute adoration CHANEL stylo yeux, eros . long wear blood red eyeliner. need i say more ? pretty crushed this is a limited edition product. i love it. obviously you can go quite gothy with it, but it also look rather subtly enchanting as a waterline color with an otherwise (relatively) normal looks. doesn't budge, color is glorious. REN Moroccan Rose Otto Ultra-Moisture Body Oil . this stuff is beyond lovely. i'm just gonna copy and paste my review i left for it, for those curious: this is no doubt a luxury item given the price (that everyone is mentioning), but what. a. treat. i've been pining for this oil for a while, recently received it as a gift, and really cannot get enough (even though, kudos to this oil for not *requiring* a lot to cover your body). absolutely locks in moisture and absorbs nicely (not instantly, but quickly enough, which i personally prefer anyway....) with the end result of baby skin. non-greasy baby skin. ROSE smelling baby skin--i adore this particular rose scent--fresh but not cloying; maybe with a hint of pepper or tea (?). i wish REN would bottle it up. if you're looking for just a thing to moisturize your skin, don't buy an expensive luxury body oil, obvs. but if you're looking for a real treat--for yourself or a loved one--don't hesitate to pick this one up. BYREDO (inez + vinoodh) 1996 EDP . i've been dreaming of this fragrance and finally stumbled upon it and i'm still mesmerized. the fragrance was inspired by the photo you see on the box there (taken in 1996 by inez & vinoodh). that strange combination of provocative innocence, it's an amber and juniper concoction unlike anything i've ever gotten my nose on before. BOOK ! SARAH MOON: NOW & THEN . this was given to me by a special person for my birthday after they'd heard me harp on and on about how brilliant--in concept and hopefully in practice--the sarah moon & NARS collab is. how incredibly thoughtful was that ? ok i'll shut up now. but i don't want y'all to shut up so please share your favorites for the month !
